Apollo Werke started car production in Apolda, a small town in Thuringia, Germany in 1910. The first years they were quite successful with the model Piccolo. Karl Slevogt, who had worked as engineer for Laurin & Klement, was engaged by Apollo. A 1921 prototype with a V-8 engine was not put into production.
